Overview

"I woke up one morning and could not get out of bed – literally. Every time I attempted to raise myself to a sitting position, pain shot through my lower back and into my left hip and buttock..."

Does this sound familiar to you?

That was 6 years ago when I first experienced the shocking sciatica pain. Horror could not begin to describe how I felt that day. For the next 12 weeks I went through hell and back. Through a series of non-surgical treatments, exercises, and stretches, I have been back pain free & have not needed to see a healthcare professional for sciatica since then. I continue to care for my back with stretching, walking and sometimes back strengthening exercises. Oh, and every now and then, I also treat my back to spinal decompression at the chiropractor’s office.

The single most important thing I learned through my ordeal with sciatica is that there is no way any doctor can tell every patient everything he or she needs to know and, unfortunately, most patients don’t know what questions to ask.

This is why I wrote "Sciatica No More." I am hoping that this book will help people learn about their conditions, learn of the many treatment options, learn to live within the limitations of their bodies and learn to live free from sciatica pain.

In this book, you will learn:

- What is sciatica & sciatic nerve pain
- Sciatica diagnostic processes, sciatica symptoms
- Common causes of sciatica
- Non-surgical treatment options
- Natural remedies for sciatica pain
- Exercises for sciatica relief
- Surgical treatment options
- Working with sciatica pain
- Travelling with sciatica pain
- Sleeping with sciatica pain
- Myths and facts about sciatica
- Learn to say sayonara sciatica
- And much more...

    I loved the simplicity of this book - the lay out as described in the table of contents helped me choose it over some other educational options and I am very glad I did. Dealing with many health issues some of which affect my memory processes makes it vital for me to read information that is thorough, yet compact enough to be read repetitively as needed or referred to quickly as needed and the well designed format has allowed me to easily find causes and recommendations for treating the various sciatica symptoms that show up each day. While the internet is wonderful for an abundance of information on any topic desired, too much information is difficult for me to manage and this book is a great referral to information I know to be true and reminders of treatment tips that I find usual depending on the issue of the day. So happy to have this waiting for me to read every time I can't remember how I need to treat my sciatica pain and disorders.

    Sciatica comes with pain, doctor¿s appointments, pain medication

    Sciatica comes with pain, doctor’s appointments, pain medication, physical therapy, and then surgery.  Or does it?  What if you could make the pain go away by changing what you do?  What if you could heal yourself?

    This book takes the reader back to health care – not as it relates to modern medicine, but on a holistic level that involves the patient caring for their own health.  It all begins with a diagnosis from an actual medical professional, but then walks you through simple exercises and lifestyle adaptations that you can do at home.  However, the author does not dismiss the patient’s need for pain medication or routine medical care.

    Anyone who suffers from sciatica should read this book.  The author is very thorough in describing the pain of sciatica, the types of tests to diagnose the condition, and the causes.  She then goes into wonderful, practical detail for how to manage sciatica through education, exercise and lifestyle changes.

    As one suffering from chronic back pain (sciatica) and herniated

    As one suffering from chronic back pain (sciatica) and herniated discs, this guide was surprisingly comprehensive covering most of the main causes of back pain along with both natural and clinical treatment options. The author does a great job of listing and explaining the different treatment options and also explains some good ways to broach the subject with physicians in order for the doctors to be agreeable to non-traditional treatments if possible. This guide works well for those newly diagnosed with back conditions or for those who have managed them for years such as myself. As one with chronic back pain, I was glad the author was careful to make sure it was clearly understood that treatments needed to be discussed with the doctor in order to fully understand all the risks. For those new to back pain or remedies for such, reading this guide will help anyone figure out where to start in trying to heal and recover from sciatica with as little traditional medication and surgeries as possible, but it does not deny some back conditions will only respond to those drastic measures in order to be improved. This is definitely a guide I will keep handy as a checklist of sorts to remind me of different things to try to relieve pain as the need arises.

    Everything you need to know about Sciatica!

    This book describes everything you need to know about sciatica. It describes to back pain sufferers that you may experiencing sciatica which is pressure on the sciatic nerves. The symptoms from this are pain in the nerves and sometimes numbness in the back itself. The great thing about this book is that it gives you several options to help treat your back pain. Many times back pain sufferers think that they are suffering a debilitating problem, but many times it is something reason simple that you can change in your lifestyle that will get rid of the pain completely. If you are suffering with back pain this book is a great read. It will give you specifics on how to tell if you have sciatica, how your doctor will diagnose it, common causes,how to prevent and treat it from home with natural remedies, and when you may need to consider surgical treatment. Overall it's a great buy.

    This book was a great way to learn about sciatica and get a firsthand account of what to expect. I liked that it gave me an idea of what to expect on the medical side of things (at the doctor’s office, treatment options etc…) but also suggested alternative treatments—including lifestyle changes and exercises—that can help relieve the pain from sciatica and strengthen back muscles to prevent further pain. While it isn’t comprehensive, it doesn’t pretend to be a medical manual. It is a great resource for those wanting first, an introduction to sciatica second, an idea of what to expect as treatment progresses and third, a list of things to try doing in your day-to-day life to relieve/reduce sciatica pain.

    I bought this book hoping to find some relief from the back and leg pain that I was having after returning to full-time work. This book is amazing! Not only do the exercises help my legs tremendously, but this book has also helped me understand what causes sciatica and what I can do to prevent future problems.

    Because of experiencing sciatic pain for the past month, have been looking for more natural ways of treating the condition. This book has a lot of information such as possible causes, I didn’t realize there were so many such as poor posture or even stress in addition to the more known causes as injuries. Will try the more natural ways of treating my sciatica including yoga and hypnosis and the many others talked about.

    I haven’t suffered with sciatica pain in a long time and yes, I remember I did have to go to the emergency room because the pain was immense. This book is a comprehensive guide to lessening or eliminating your sciatica pain altogether. It's a good read for anyone who is suffering with sciatica pain and they can get relief from not just taking medications but with holistic, yoga, meditation and acupuncture remedies. The author does a great job of getting what she has learned in dealing with pain to her readers without confusing them.

    DON'T BOTHER

    Read in less than an hour and learned nothing not available on the web from sites like WebMD. Maybe if you're experiencing sciatica for the first time or really need a primer, this book would help. If you're looking for indepth info and specifics, dont bother with this book.
